An article in the Sunday Telegraph makes inaccurate and misleading claims about Hizb ut-Tahrir and its links to schooling.
In relation to the article:
1) Hizb ut-Tahrir is an Islamic political party. We do not run the Islamic Shaksiyah Foundation or any other school, and have never run any school. We do not, and have never, received any form of government funding. It is well known that Hizb ut-Tahrir never accepts any funding from any government.
(2) We would certainly approve of those in the Muslim community who seek to establish good Islamic schools that develop a strong foundation so that our children stand out as a model in achievement and behaviour and participate in the society as ‘active citizens’ without eroding their Islamic identity.
(3) Hizb ut-Tahrir does not, and has never, run the Muslim Community Representatives Camden and Islington Association (MCRCIA).
(4) Contrary to his hysterical and fabricated claim, it is well known that Hizb ut-Tahrir does not work to “bring down the British state”. It is well known that Hizb ut-Tahrir works to re-establish a caliphate in the Muslim world – a fact that should have been known by any junior researcher.
